i'm so fucking happy beck won. "Beyonce sold more albums", and? Pretty sure the grammy's aren't a competition for units sold.

I'm not saying Beyonce's album wasn't good, personally I didn't like it, but that's beside the point. Though it's gonna be annoying to open literally any social network for the next 2.5 years and see sporadic posts about how Beck personally stole from and oppressed Beyonce.
>>

i said to myself at the start of this how funny it would be if beck won his first grammy for aoty with what is easily the worst thing he's ever put out.

It literally used to be. That's the only reason Taylor Swift won a few years ago.

Now, all you have to do to win AOTY is have a steady fanbase but be non-existent on the radio.

>>53458325
I enjoyed most of the songs equally. If I had to pick i guess 'waking light'. 'heart is a drum' is the only song I didn't like.

I'm happy about it. I have a few friends who are annoying pop types and I'm happy to see 'em a little riled about it.

Also anyone here ever listen to the 3 singles he put out in between Modern Guilt and Morning Phase? Easily some of my favorite songs by him.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pDSjOM42HZU

>>53458434
I dunno it just seemed like a generic neo folk type song, didn't fit with the rest of the album in my opinion.

So Beck's like 9th best album was still better than the rest of the nominations

What a GOAT

cyanide breath mint is probably my favorite song out of his entire catelogue. See Water is great too.

I remember listening to Mellow Gold when I was 13, my dad's friend gave me a bunch of his old CD's. Mellow Gold's cover stuck out the most so I listened to it. Probably the first album I listened to as a whole in my life. Praise Beck

>>53458925
Modern Guilt was pretty good. Should have been way longer though.

One Foot In The Grave is his best album in my opinion
that or Sea Change.
Beck's one of the few artists where all of his albums are good. Even Midnite Vultures had some good stuff

Modern Guilt is definitely his best album, with Guero being second I think

Who is this mysterious musician anyway? Is Beck his real name? Where did he come from?
>>
>>53458288
I personally think Midnight Vultures, but I'm way in the minority. It's his most fun and I think that's why people don't appreciate it as much, they think he is joking around. It has some of his best production and variety imo.

here's a good line

"By 1993, Beck was living in a rat-infested shed near a Los Angeles alleyway with little money."

It makes me feel so god damned good that when you guys ask "what is beck's best album?" and you post basically all his albums. I've been such a big fan of his since Modern Guilt and I'm always so happy when his discography is praised. Glad he won that Grammy.

Oh and is acoustic Beck better than electric/hip-hop beck?

Kanye has now entered Nas territory - entertaining producer who should never speak publicly, ever, because he sounds like a complete moron. Anyone who's read about Beck's albums getting made knows...especially Odelay, that was like back to back to back to back 18 hour days, they worked on that album like it was sweatshop labor. Beck was rapping before Kanye. And he actually, y'know, plays a shit ton of instruments AND does the electronics...TOP KEK

What was Beyonce's "monumental feat"? Selling a lot of albums quickly? That's not the criteria that the Grammy's use. Why do people keep encouraging this kind of behavior from Kanye and from black people in general? Treat everyone like a normal person. If they say or do something wrong, react accordingly. What's so hard about that?

Beck is my favorite artist ever and Midnite Vultures is mostly shit

Soft Rock? Electronic Rock? Country?

>>53460173
Midnite Vultures is not your kind of beck´s-alternative-quite depressing-kind of thing.
>>
>>53460241
Almost all of his albums are of different genres.
>>
>>53460241
One of the biggest things about Beck is that he constantly changes and flirts with different genres. Generally you could describe him as alternative rock, but clearly it doesn't give you an idea of what he sounds like.

His albums usually have a unifying genre. Midnite Vultures is disco revival. Morning Phase is Folk Rock. Sea Change is Indie Folk. His earlier albums are anti-folk.
>>
the fact that beyonce supporters getting mad at an artists they don't even know and have never even listened to a minute of his music is ridiculous. I mean morning phase was not his best but people bitching and moaning about beyonce not getting album of the year after already winning like what? 20 or so grammys throughout her career?

all these tears. all these tears. "beck is oppressing black culture and music."

>This album literally came out of nowhere and caused the whole world to stop and listen to an album collectively all at once. Radio was playing the whole album reminiscing about days when music was released like this, literally every article from December leading to the new year was about self-titled. Not only was it a commercial success, it was sonically her best album, not to mention the visual aspects of it were beautiful and brilliant. She deserved to win that category more than anyone else, these are facts.

So underrated it cost me tons finding it. Maybe one of Beck´s best albums.
>>
>>53460297

I don't know if Morning Phase is the album that deserves A grammy, but BECK I think deserves it as an artist. He's been making great albums for years and years, as a performer, songwriter, everything.

Also, he's a great populist music story. Kids can dream of becoming Beck - he was just a broke-ass, scummy kid who loved a lot of folk shit, and just made music to make it until someone bothered to notice. I don't even know what being inspired by Beyonce would look like. Anyone like her is some untouchable fantasy idol thing that doesn't seem to have any connection to reality. Musically, you might as well be inspired by kpop idols.

the thing about people like that is that they all seem to have a narrow scope of music in general and they all think that success should be measured by popularity. hell they don't even realize that beyonce is not the first of many to release their albums in less commercialized ways.

To contrast with kayne's beliefs, simply being black does not make beyonce any more of an artist than beck. It just makes her black.

Wanting to be Beyonce is as useful as wanting to be the Duchess of Wales.

You know, I actually lost a lot of my respect for black people today at least the ones on Black Twitter. That they are getting so butt blasted as to demand Beck give back his Grammy because their precious race didn't win pisses me off.

I read all the disrespect and its blowing my mind. I went to Beck show and this guy fucking brings it with all his effort and being. He writes all his own lyrics and could probably beat Kanye in a lyric battle BTW if he wanted to do a straight rap album.

He has been at music before Kanye even started and far longer than Beyonce and all without a huge crew of producers and songwriters that Beyonce had.

Meanwhile I will be wanting the best ARTISTS to win not giving a shit about race.

The Album of the Year award has become a glorified Lifetime achievement award. If Beyonce wants one she can earn one the way Beck did and learn an instrument, rehearse a band and tour them tirelessly and prove her worth beyond one "great" album by making 3 or 4 more just like Beck did after he lost this award for 'Odelay' back in 1997 (to a French-Canadian woman btw). Might help if she also manages to find some clothes to put on and maybe start writing songs about things other than how horny she is and what life is like with a vagina. And don't get me started on the multitudes of other musicians who aren't Beyonce who've never won this "award" whether they were deserving or not.

Hyundai actually stepped their shit up in terms of cars sometime in the mid 2000's. I drive like an 06 Sonata and I've hardly had any issues out of it that I didn't cause myself.

Yeah though, the black sperg-out over Beck winning is fucking ridiculous. Especially that soundcloud rant with that bitch saying the committees kids should die because Beyonce didn't win.

Mellow Gold tied with The Information

The Information is criminally underrated

>>53457766
Did he win best album or something?

First of all, fuck this children's website for reminding me the Grammy's exist. They have never been relevant in music.

That said, I do think it's too bad Beck has had all this attention drawn to him (I mean, it must just be so embarrassing for him). It's so bizarre that this new generation of kids has access to information that previous generations could never even imagine and yet they all go and make idiots of themselves instead of looking something up first. Beck is one of the most critically acclaimed artists of all time, obviously he's going to win a Grammy now when he's too old to do anything relevant. That's just how these sorts of institutions work and always have.

Well, he does admit his ignorance though the idea that he thinks he hasn't heard of Beck because he doesn't listen to the radio is hilarious. At least his wife knows what's up.

>In 2009, Claire Boucher and her then-boyfriend from Tennessee constructed a 20-foot houseboat named Velvet Glove Cast in Iron, with the intention to sail down the Mississippi River from Minneapolis to New Orleans. The cargo included food (chickens and 20 pounds of potatoes), a typewriter, and a gifted copy of Mark Twain's Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Unfortunately for the pair, the chickens caught the eastern equine encephalitis virus and perished soon into the trip, so their diet consisted mainly of potatoes. The couple adopted the names Veruschka and Zelda Xox for the trip. Due to their disregard for local boating regulations and houseboat's engine trouble, the journey was cut short, as the houseboat was impounded along with the food.
